apple tv to rival netflix

Apple wages war on Netflix streaming service

According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, Apple Music service are planning to add original video content to their service to help gain more subscribers.

This has been rumoured for a long time. It seems that Apple is now starting to reach out to Hollywood producers and are planning to add original content by the end of this year. 

Apple are apparently trying to create some hard hitting original content like Westworld and Stranger Things.  There will be original movies potentially appearing later on down the line if the Tv Shows are a success.

There’s no news as to what type of shows that the big fruit seem to be planning due to how tight lipped they are with things usually.  This is kind of a surprise but kind of isn’t. Apple recently released a documentary. It was called 808: The Movie and narrated by Zane Lowe. So there were some signs! Apple acquired the rights to broadcast their own 30 minute series of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. Also the company are planning a semi-autobiographical documentary series. One called ‘Vital Signs’ starring Dr Dre which is due out on Apple Music this year.

So this new venture see’s Apple’s first step outside of music related video content. How will they do?
